Helen Flanagan - Helen Flanagan Exempt From I'm A Celebrity Tasks Over Panic Attacks?

Helen Flanagan could sit out of the gruelling challenges on this year's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here because of concerns over her panic attacks. The former Coronation Street star has reportedly asked to be exempt from the infamous bushtucker trials, according to The Mirror.

Flanagan was announced as part of the 10-strong team for the latest instalment of the jungle reality show, which also includes boxer David Haye and Eastenders actress Charlie Brooks. One unnamed celebrity feared they could end up doing more tasked because of Flanagan's free-pass, telling a friend, "It wouldn't be fair on everyone else as producers wouldn't want to take any chances..You have to question how many tasks she could miss." The actress wouldn't be the first to sit out of tasks, with nutritionist and television personality Gillian McKeith allowed to be exempt a couple of years ago. Helen, who played Rose Webster on Corrie for years, is reportedly getting around £150,000 for her two-week stint in the jungle and has been installed as third favourite with the bookmakers, behind Haye and comedian Brian Conley.

Flanagan, who is dating Manchester City footballer Scott Sinclair, had to briefly stop filming Coronation Street after suffering from panic attacks on-set. "I didn't know what might have caused it. I am trying to work out what triggers them," she said at the time.
